Summary/Abstract: The main protagonist of slovak photography, Judita Csáderová, is a highly subjective author, working mainly with the imaginative and surrealistic visual language, interpreted via her very own timeless, abstract lines. Torsos and imprints of female body, surrealistic links to irrationality and to her desire to fly, imaginative lines and feathers floating in the air - these are the key elements, the representatives of „metaphysical umbilical cord“ of the photographer ́s physical body, her dreams and the medium of the photography itself. The similar connection can be found in her photographic views of the old town alleys of Bratislava, these pictures are characterised by their monochromatism, darkness, dramatism, almost even existencial poetism. The spectator thus becomes a subject of the gaze of a mysterious lady from an old photo album, ora dreamlike face with eyes of butterfly wings, and often also the photographer herself, for whom the self-portrait is not only a form of silent introspection, but later also a form of intense exposure of herself and total fusion with the photographic medium in the form of a photogram. Csáderová’s works are also influenced by her fascination by optical qualities of the medium she uses. The typical features of her work like imagination, dreaminess and effortlessness with which she crosses the boundaries between everyday reality and the mysterious inner world of herself, or the spectator, whom she invites to a silent dialogue.
